 Drop-in Meditation Session: Compassion & Mindfulness Meditation

 taught by Maya Nader

June 12, 2017, 6:00 - 7:00 pm 

 

CCFW is pleased to offer monthly drop-in meditation sessions. A different CCFW instructor will lead each month’s session so that participants can experience different mindfulness practices and instructor styles. These sessions are also intended to support participants from previous mindfulness courses in strengthening their home practice. All levels of experience are welcome.

 

About the Session 

This session is inspired by Compassion Cultivation Training (CCT), which combines traditional contemplative practices with contemporary psychology and research. CCT is an eight week program designed to strengthen resilience, increase connection with others, and provide a general sense of well-being. Research demonstrates that CCT increases compassion for others, from others, and for self. It also increases mindfulness skills, self-efficacy, care for self and others, and the mind wandering toward pleasant topics. CCT has also been found to decrease worry and mind wandering onto unpleasant topics.

 

About the Instructor

Maya Nader is a certified CCT instructor by the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University. A native of Beirut, Lebanon, Maya earned her B.A. in Political Science from the American University of Beirut. She moved to the US in 1989, at the height of the Lebanese war. As she continued her quest for peace in her country and region, Maya obtained a Master’s degree in Communication and Marketing from Boston University. She speaks French, Arabic, and English and is grateful for the cultural richness these languages encompass. Through this lens, Maya views compassion as a bridge between cultures and religions and as the cornerstone of a more peaceful world. In her teaching CCT, Maya continues to practice self-help and assist others in broadening compassion, which ultimately creates opportunities for peace. More on Maya at mayanader.com
